Beginner Sessions

Session starts at 6.30pm. We usually arrive at 6.25. Wear comfortable clothing (don't worry if you are not lycra clad) and most importantly some running shoes. Advice on suitable gear, including shoes, is generally discussed within the session.

Each session contains warm up activities/ stretching, training to improve and maintain stamina and / or speed, and hopefully a bit of fun. We introduce runners jargon- PB, paarlauf, reps, pace,etc and discuss any concerns. Our aim is to encourage and give confidence to beginner runners and walkers of all abilities.

Group members often arrange further sessions between themselves in the week. Session ends at 7.30 ish.
